  • New York Plans to Ban Sale of Big Sizes of Sugary Drinks

    The New York Times ^ | May 30, 2012 | MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM
    New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity. The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle —...

And one of the recipients... It's the little things like this, folks. one of the recipients of the Medal of Freedom was a woman by the name of Huerta, Dolores Huerta. Do any of you know her? The mention of the name Dolores Huerta, does it mean anything, H-u-e-r-t-a. Let's listen to President Obama presenting the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dolores Huerta.

    Fortnight for Freedom   On April 12, the Ad Hoc Committee on Religious Liberty of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a document, "Our First, Most Cherished Liberty,” outlining the bishops’ concerns over threats to religious freedom, both at home and abroad. The bishops called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of prayer, education and action in support of religious freedom, from June 21-July 4.Bishops in their own dioceses are encouraged to arrange special events to highlight the importance of defending religious freedom. Catholic institutions are encouraged to do the same, especially in cooperation with...

    When we think about what characterizes free men, what qualities or habits they usually exhibit, there are a handful of traits that seem to show themselves again and again. For instance, free men speak their minds: which is not the same thing as saying they run their mouths. Rather, it is simply to point out that when something needs to be said, a free man will often say it. And free men abide by the intuitive, internal witness to right and wrong embedded in them by God, through nature. In truth, they not only abide by it — they actually...

    Fear! and being the first man I want to post a comment on this. FEAR! It is the life draining emotion. It is what keeps you from accomplishing and doing and starting. It is excessively protectful. It is how animals think...the kind of animals that get eaten. Fear is destructive in that it prevents you from doing anything at all other than running away or hunkering in a fetal "down and cover". Fear thrives on pessimism and complaining. The man that wakes every morning, walks outside and smiles at the bright sun and blue sky and cinches down the ruck,...

    Often when I speak about the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, and what actions we need to take in order to preserve our rights, I am rebuked with the apathetic response, “From my cold dead hands.” While this is very poetic expression of an admirable sentiment, it is unlikely to ever happen, and unlikely to be effective. But there are things we can do today that are far less costly, far less poetic, and drastically more effective.

    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical...

  • Obesity fight must shift from personal blame: U.S. panel [Gov't Regulation is their solution]

    America's obesity epidemic is so deeply rooted that it will take dramatic and systemic measures - from overhauling farm policies and zoning laws to, possibly, introducing a soda tax - to fix it, the influential Institute of Medicine said on Tuesday. In an ambitious 478-page report, the IOM refutes the idea that obesity is largely the result of a lack of willpower on the part of individuals. Instead, it embraces policy proposals that have met with stiff resistance from the food industry and lawmakers, arguing that multiple strategies will be needed to make the U.S. environment less "obesogenic." The IOM,...

    Vatican City -- In an election season in which the White House has instituted a policy that puts unprecedented limits on the constitutional right to freedom of religion, questions of conscience, duty and spiritual and moral obligation are of critical importance. A conference at the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences had some related thoughts and warnings. The Vatican think tank was founded in 1994 and is meant to facilitate a continuing dialogue between faith and reason, between the social sciences and the social thought of the Church. To an American sitting in on the conference, some of its sessions...

    After the September 11 2001 attacks, the only thing that the government needed to do to prevent future attacks was to reinforce airline cockpit doors, and to toughen visa restrictions on foreigners coming to America. Foreign nationals living within America should also have been subjected to tougher vetting. The Patriot Act was not necessary, and American citizens did not deserve to lose their freedoms. In 2001, Republicans never expected a socialist like Obama to come to office, and they allowed the Bush administration to take as much power as it wanted from the American people. The greatest mistake that the...

It was ignorant and perhaps stupid, and has created a mini firestorm in southern Florida. The comment has caused a fairly predictable reaction from many including the media, particularly in this case, the sports media. The belief that we are constitutionally guaranteed the right to free speech, and with that freedom we can say whatever we want without consequence is false.

Yesterday, President Kirchner revealed another reason she returned to Buenos Aires: to announce the nationalization of the Argentine oil company, YPF, whose majority stakeholder is the Spanish energy firm, Repsol. The move has infuriated Repsol and Spanish officials, and raised concerns that this may be the first of many expropriations of privately run companies in Argentina, putting the government on the path toward a Hugo...

For many with strong remembrance of President Ronald Reagan, Obama cannot compare. History will remind us that President Reagan, "The Great Communicator,"continually conveyed love of country; it's people and history. He strived to bring us together, having pride in country and gratitude for its blessings. Whereas, Obama, with arrogance, has pushed an unsolicited agenda, purposefully, rewrote history, shown contempt for nation with his "apology tour,"and avoided acknowledgment of, "The City on the Hill." President Reagan stood with conviction for...
